📝The Focus

ICYMI: We’re gearing for the HR Technology Conference next week 😲 and when it comes to establishing new relationships, we sure hope what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas!

Here’s a sneak peak of the top 10 things we think we all need to remember when it comes to successful conference networking:

1. Set Clear Goals: Define what you want to achieve through networking at the conference. Are you looking for new clients, job opportunities, or industry knowledge? Setting clear goals will help you prioritize your efforts.

2. Perfect Your Elevator Pitch: Craft a concise and engaging introduction that clearly communicates who you are, what you do, and what you’re looking for. Practice your elevator pitch to deliver it confidently.

3. Attend Networking Events: Take advantage of official networking events organized by the conference. These events provide an opportunity to meet a larger group of attendees and expand your network.

4. Utilize Social Media: Use social media platforms like Twitter or LinkedIn to engage with conference attendees and speakers. Share interesting insights, ask questions, and connect with people online to continue the conversation beyond the conference.

5. Offer Value: Remember that networking is a two-way street. Look for opportunities to provide value to the people you meet. Offer your expertise, connect them with relevant contacts, or share valuable resources. Being a giver will strengthen your relationships.

🛠️ The Toolbox
